Yarrimbah Farm (#051)

Yarrimbah Farm

Shane and Debbie Stranges passion for growing plants together began in the mid 80’s when they started a pop up nursery to fund a trip around Australia (1987). Shane and Deb cultivated hundreds of small plants; roses, orchids & geranium and sold them at the Frankston market each week for almost a year on the side, Shane was working as a nurseryman and Deb at her family’s local mower shop in Hastings.
Shane grew up on a vineyard in Mildura, and has been connected to the land ever since, memories of taking cuttings and planting them at just five years old with his Aunty and Nan are some of his fondest. His professional career began at Georyl nursery in Tyabb as a nurseryman specialising in flowers.
After the big trip Shane retuned to work at Shoreham valley palms where he was approached by the vineyard manager from Tucks Ridge, knowing Shane had grown up on a vineyard, he asked if he knew how to prune grapes, like second nature to Shane he showed them how to prune and began casually working on the vineyard. After about 6 months Tucks Ridge offered him a full time position to learn the ropes as Vineyard Manager and in 3 years’ time Shane become the Head Viticulturist. Shane and Deb moved onto the vineyard, Deb was working the cellar door at Tucks Ridge, while Shane managed the vineyard dusk ‘til dawn.
In 1988 Red Hill Vigneron Services (RHVS) was developed, Shane in partnership with 2 others started contracting their knowledge and established over 50 renowned vineyards across the Mornington Peninsula. After many years working with “RHVS” Shane went out on his own and started another business concentrating on Viticulture and Property Consultancy, while Deb raised their 4 children (Joel 28, Taylah 26, Korey 24 & Matilda 16).
In 2003 the Strange family purchased the family property on Coolart Road, Bittern, today known as Yarrimbah farm, Aboriginal for “Meeting Place on the Hill”, a 7acre micro market garden where they specialise in growing chemical free Red, Gold, Black & Purple Raspberries, Tayberries, Loganberries, Silvanberries, Blackberries, Dwarf Apples, Peaches, Purple, White & green Asparagus and Garlic.
Shane & Deb’s main focus lies in growing speciality and rare variety plants, chemically free, to supply local farmgates and restaurants fresh from the paddock. All of their produce is picked to perfect ripeness and delivered daily.

Lil’s Farm – Yolky Dokey Eggs (#040)

Lil’s Farm – Yolky Dokey Eggs | Somerville

In February 2018, our beautiful daughter Lily Grace, was killed in a tragic 4WD accident at the age of 20. In the long grief-stricken days that followed a vision was born out of the deep love that a mother has for her daughter. On Lily’s bucket list was a dream to own her own bush block, raise pasture-fed hens, sell their free-range eggs whilst operating a beauty salon on the side. Within a few weeks of Lily’s death, we secured a lease on a 50-acre property in Somerville and the Yolky Dokey pasture-raised egg dream for Lil was to become a reality.

Lil’s 50-acre Farm has 1450 hens in 6 chicken caravans. The caravans have automated doors enabling the chooks to roam free during the day and close them in safely at night time. Their second line of defense, four alpacas and maremma dogs as livestock guardians to protect the brood. We would like the number of chickens to remain fewer than 100 hens per hectare, as we believe it is the key to both sustainable farming and ensuring that the girls have plenty of space to live a happy and healthy life.

We supply local businesses and have our farm gate open from 9am – 1pm on at Saturdays.

Tuerong Farm (#046)

Tuerong Farm

Tuerong farm is the only farm on the Peninsula to grow and mill heritage, ancient and modern cereal grains. We also produce pulses as part of ourcrop rotations, along with grass fed beef, eggs and honey.

  • At the moment we have available three different winter white wheats/flours and Red wheat/flour. The wheat hasn’t been sitting in a shed for years, it hasn’t been roller milled, it hasn’t sat on a shelf for years – it is stoneground and it tastes fresh and is packed with flavour and nutrients.
  • We just harvested a malting barley yesterday for the beer makers out there. Rather than malt I will steam and roll so brewers can readily use and extract the flavour.
  • All crops are grown without the use of systemic sprays and cover crops like fava beans and buckwheat add further diversity to our ecosystem and our offerings.
  • For orders of flour, grains, and other products please call mobile 0419 307 934.
